Ilha Grande

Do you like Brazil and the colorfulness of Rio de Janeiro? Then you should definitely visit Ilha Grande, a beautiful island located near Sao Paulo. The island is quite untouched, as not many tourists reach this island. The beach is lined by greenery and the water is so clear that you can see the ocean’s bottom without even struggling. There are many shipwrecks around this Island which makes it perfect for snorkeling or scuba diving. Moreover, there is a lagoon nearby, which is called the Lagoa Azul. You can swim among seahorses, crabs and turtles for an unforgettable experience.

Anguilla

Anguilla might be the best places you ever selected for snorkeling and underwater activities. Why? The location has a water that such clear that the visibility reaches around 100 feet. There are multiple spots that offer gorgeous underwater views and the ocean is filled with coral gardens of up to eight feet around this area. Swimming among squids and enjoying the amazing puffer fish on this island should be enough for a wonderful holiday experience.

Whitsunday Islands

If you have the chance to visit Australia, you can’t leave without snorkeling on the Whitsunday Islands. The coral formations near these islands can be seen from above, and that’s what mesmerizes most tourists. Another memorable thing about the Whitsunday Islands is represented by The Stepping Stones, which represent formations covered in dense coral. Tropical fish swim near The Stepping Stones all the time, so you can snorkel around while enjoying the beautiful view. Find private snorkeling trips if you want to get the best out of your holiday.

Phi Phi Islands

Thailand became a popular location during the past few years, so you probably heard about the beauty of Phi Phi Islands. The attractions of these islands are represented by the limestone cliffs, which keep the sun from touching the water outside 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.  and the amazing, deep green water.
